Been getting some heavy hitting help with my acting animation lately.
I always feel like I have so many ideas that I want to squeeze in: eye darts, little brow flicks, physical accents etc, and really my piece is stronger with less of it.
The thought occurred to me to try looking at things backwards. So next time I'm going to try and figure out how few ideas I can get in, and let the audience fill the rest in.
Minimum amount of ideas possible, if I have a new idea then it can replace an existing idea if it's better. Instead of trying to squeeze more ideas in, try and squeeze more ideas out.
Survival of the strongest.
